? i mean, you've learned that. inverse square law, twice as far away, 1/4 the effect, okay? so as these things get further and further away, the electrical force kind of peters down. but the strong interaction really, really peters down. and that means you can't really have a very big atomic nucleus. and here's why. let's suppose you have a big nucleus as this big. you got a proton over here and protons over here, they're so far apart. the nuclear interaction between these two is almost trivial. but between these two of the electric compulsion is not trivial. and so what happens? very, very large nucleus, just by virtue of the spreading apart, are unstable nuclei and that's beyond 83, atomic number 83. every atomic nucleus above atomic number 83 is unstable. and in that environment, you have then the ejection of alpha, beta and gamma particles. so it's almost simple geometry. right now, this particle we'd call an alpha particle. this is a helium nucleus. and i'll write that helium nucleus like this. and i'll put a two down here and a four here. and this nomenclature, i hope you're

programs, has significantly improved air quality. kolb: since 1970, we've had fairly strict laws which have helped stop the increase in bad air-pollution episodes and, in fact, in most cities have decreased them. but in cities with rapid growth and with challenging climates -- climates that can lead to a lot of chemistry in the air and a lot of secondary pollution formation, there are certainly still big challenges left. narrator: developing innovative ways to measure primary and secondary pollutants is a necessary first step in creating effective strategies for protecting human health. but measuring the local air pollution from cars and factories is just one piece of the puzzle. atmospheric circulation carries pollutant streams far beyond the metropolitan areas where they are created, causing regional and even global effects. and so the pollutions that are created in the large megacities in china can deliver very high levels of pollutants all across the united states, just as the pollution that's created in the midwest and the eastern part of the united ates reaches all the way to eur
